District Finance Update

  • Worthington Schools is on the November 2022 ballot with a combined bond issue and permanent improvement levy and an incremental operating levy (two issues):


    • The $234 million bond issue will provide resources to complete Phase 2 of the Master Facilities Plan, which calls for rebuilding Thomas Worthington High School and renovating Worthington Kilbourne High School. The permanent improvement levy will provide a designated funding source for school buses, maintenance of our facilities, back-end technology, playground equipment, and furniture.

    • The operating levy will fund daily operations that will help keep up with inflation and our growing student enrollment.
